Tabernacle | Fitting The Backing Plate

When satisfied that the bolt holes for the tabernacle were marked in the right position I test fitted the backing plate with temporary screws.

The plate has to be secured with a single screw inside the cabin, and then four more screws from outside.

Here is the inside view.

And this is the outside.

I used plywood washers to protect the cabin wall.

When satisfied that the backing plate was fitted correctly I took it out and glued it back in place, held firmly by the temporary screws.

The final task when it had cured was to take out the screws using a heat gun to soften the epoxy to prevent them from snapping, like this.

Onwards and upwards!
